Cryptocurrency has been in a crazy space for quite some time now with large percentage gains, and an essentially unregulated market. The market has gotten so hot, that one Tesla owner fitted the back of his car with a mining rig, so that it can make money as it drives. The photo of the car shows that there are around 16 graphics cards that are mounted within four different motherboards.

The graphics cards are what are used for the process of mining and are needed to complete computational problems that allow transactions to be processed, thus giving the miner a stipend for their work. The logic behind using a Tesla as a space for mining cryptocurrency is that the extremely high cost of energy associated with mining cryptocurrency means that the Tesla is the perfect place to start. With a cheaper energy source, the amount of money that can potentially be made is astronomically higher.

In addition, the large network of Tesla Superchargers offer unlimited free electricity to those who have bought a car prior to January 2016, and a very high amount to those who purchased one after that date. One of the issues with this is the amount of waste heat that is produced by mining. This would make the vehicle extremely hot, and borderline undriveable. Those who are on the Tesla limited electricity program, if using their car to mine, would only be able to run their mining rigs for seven days before reaching their yearly electricity limit. On the other end, the data does show that this method of mining within a car could help to offset the costs of the high priced car, and even break even on leasing one of them.
